We don’t have a lot of traditions over Christmas – but the ones we do have – we stick to them.
Years ago we started making Christmas Eve Shortcut Buns. We make them on Christmas Eve just before we leave for our big family party. It is one of those recipes that the girls who were very young at the time were able to help with (and still do!).

In the morning, I heat the oven up after I get my cup of coffee before the girls start unwrapping and it is usually out of the oven before they finish. I always make this in a Bundt pan and dump it over onto our glass cake plate.
They are sticky and sweet and we LOVE them!
1 cup brown sugar (3/4 cup is not SO sweet)
1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, melted
